CryoCorrect Q & A

What is CryoCorrect?

CryoCorrect is a skin treatment developed by Skinceuticals that uses carbon dioxide gas to freeze off unwanted age spots, sun spots, and skin tags from your face, hands, and body. It’s a noninvasive treatment that uses the principles of cryotherapy — or cold therapy — to remove unwanted dark spots and skin tags.

The procedure takes 5-8 seconds to perform on each dark spot or skin tag you want to be removed. Compared to other noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments for dark spots — including over-the-counter creams, chemical peels, and lasers — CryoCorrect is the fastest treatment available for dark spot and skin tag removal.

How does CryoCorrect work?

The CryoCorrect handheld wand controls the amount of carbon dioxide gas released for millimeter-precise treatments to address the specific dark spot or skin tag that is being removed without irritating surrounding skin.

As the carbon dioxide interacts with your skin, it alters the cells in the area, making the dark spot or skin tag darker in color. Within 2-3 days, a scab develops and sloughs off, removing the dark spot or skin tag.

What can I expect when getting CryoCorrect?

Before your procedure, your provider performs a thorough skin exam to locate and identify the dark spots and skin tags you want to be treated. Once you’re ready for the procedure, your provider uses the handheld CryoCorrect wand — which looks like a large pen or marker — to apply a small stream of carbon dioxide gas to the affected area.

You feel a blast of cold air for a few seconds, though carbon dioxide gas isn’t as cold as applying ice or other cryotherapy treatments. CryoCorrect treatments last 5-8 seconds per area and can be performed on multiple dark spots or skin tags during the same visit.

Since the procedure is noninvasive, it’s uncommon to experience redness or skin sensitivity after your treatment. The treatment area immediately turns a darker color and sloughs off within 2-3 days. Your provider may recommend an at-home skin care regimen to gently exfoliate your skin to aid in the process or may call for additional treatments, depending on the size and condition of your sunspot, dark spot, or skin tag.
